emotional reaction from president obama. you just saw it live here on cnn, to the failed gun control vote in the united states senate. we'll analyze that as well. >>> and he was a trauma surgeon in the u.s. army reserves. a hero of the boston bombings. he said he hasn't seen wounds this bad since he operated in a war zone in iraq and afghanistan. the trauma surgeon is here with me. we'll talk about what he has seen, what he has done. stay with us. our special coverage will continue. ♪ [ male announcer ] the distances aren't getting shorter. ♪ the trucks are going farther. the 2013 ram 1500 with best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. guts. glory. ram. the new ram 1500. motor trend's 2013 truck of the year. at a hertz expressrent kiosk, you can rent a car without a reservation... and without a line. now that's a fast car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz. are you still sleeping? just wanted to check and make sure that we were on schedule. the first technology of its kind... mom and dad, i have great news. is now providing answers
. >> let's be honest. you worked at the department of homeland security under president obama. the u.s. is often skeptical when the russians talk about chechen islamic terrorism because they think the russians are trying to bring the u.s. into a conflict that the u.s. does not play a role in. the fbi looking into the older brother is a concerning turn of events. we now know that the fbi had been alert bid the russians that this young man was an extremist, in their view, the older brother. what do you think is going on right now at the fbi? >> i think they are reviewing that investigation and who did it. i tend to be more cautious in terms of what happened and whether we would know things now. in particular because radicalization is really hard to say there's a moment in time when this happened and we could have stopped it it then. i've been through enough both disasters and all sorts of havoc in my life that looking back it's easier than in the moment. so the question is how many chechens did the fbi interview. if there were thousands, then it would be they were doing a sweep. if it
with somebody like obama bin laden, it would be me and him and a baseball bat. if i want to be macho, i challenge you to an arm wrestling contest. i am telling you how i feel. 100 times over, i will give you the same answer. >> if we could keep this as simple as possible, quite difficult currently. this will change everything if you start to torture american citizens for committing domestic crimes inside america. am i wrong? >> you are not wrong. im as red blooded american as anybody and i go back to thomas jefferson who wanted to change the fifth amendment, which has complicated language about self-incrimination. he wanted an outright vote against torture under all circumstances. torture is unconstitutional, illegal, in violation of every international treaty. should never under any circumstances be used. where i agree with him and said it would be used if we had a ticking bomb terrorist case. if we actually had a situation where the choice was between letting the bomb go off and killing thousands of people or torturing somebody, every president what allow, even this president, would n
. oh my god. oh my god. oh my god. >> president barack obama says he has ordered the full resources of the federal government to respond to the boston attacks. he stopped short of calling it terrorism, saying authorities don't yet have all the answers. >> we still do not know who did this or why. and people shouldn't jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. but make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this and we'll find out why they did this. any response -- any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice. >> president of the united states earlier today. we are learning of some interesting police activity in revere, massachusetts, just five miles from downtown boston. >> brian todd joins us on the line can you tell us, are police still there on the scene? >> reporter: yes, they are still on the scene. state police are here. possibly other local police and possibly federal officials on the scene. they have been here for several hours investigating, we're told, one apartment here on ocean avenue
right now, wolf, is a letter addressed to president obama that contained a suspicious substance and that's all that we're being told, was intercepted at an offsite mail processing facility. this is a mail facility run by the secret service where they get all the mail addressed to the white house. and they check it for this very reason, to screen it, to do scientific tests to make sure it's safe to come here. it had a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is.
united states, president obama, he's about to arrive here in boston, as we get ready for a memorial service, honoring the victims. those who died, as well as those who suffered in this horrible boston marathon bombing. that will begin shortly. we're following also the investigation behind this terror. >> how are you, wolf? good to be with you today. we'll start with what's going on in west, texas. west is the name of the town, about 20 miles from waco. a very desperate situation since about 7:30 local p.m. a fire broke out at a fertilizer factory there. about 15 minutes later, a massive explosion. so powerful, it registered as an earthquake. 2.1 magnitude earthquake. explosion of noxious compound used in making federal lieser this is a small town, only about 3,000 people. 50 to 60 homes have been destroyed. half the town, 1,300 people, forced to be evacuated. injuries were quick, some severe, over 160 people treated so far. the most difficult part of the situation, it's so dire, it's the unknown. the chemical compound, anhydrous ammonia, used in making fertilizer. can be lethal. the
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w
the police commissioner here to president obama promises to find out who is behind these bombings and they all say they will be brought to justice. two bomb blasts less than 15 seconds apart near the finish line of the boston marathon. three people dead, 144, at least 144 others wounded. 17 of those are in critical condition this morning. and boston's normally bustling downtown area is now a crime scene. about a mile of boylston street, one of the busiest streets in the city with copley place, the boston public library, other locations, that is shut down this morning. it is a crime scene. national guard patrolling the streetsment you can see police out walking on the sidewalk. president obama is promising the full weight of justice for whoever is responsible for the bombing at this race. the president didn't use the word terror when he addressed the media last night at the white house. but he made it clear that the u.s. will hunt down the culprit. he also reached out to congressional leaders saying this is a time for unity among americans. cnn's brianna keilar is standing by at th
at the white house, that president obama was hurt, immediately this happened a little after 1:00. i don't know if you can see this, we printed out this chart, you can see what happened here, just around 1:15 when the tweet went out, the market fell, the market fell over 100 points, 133 points to be exact. dipped into the negative. that happened within seconds. within seconds that drop happened. and then ap sent out another tweet saying that they were hacked, and then you saw the market immediately shoot back up. it was a total 180, the market went from negative all the way to positive, over 100 points again within minutes. very dramatic whiplash kind of move. shows you in the age of computerized trading how wall street can react to a tweet that is read around the web. >> boy, oh, boy, alison, such a look at how in the digital age everything moves so quickly. you have to be right about your information. thank you for telling us that. appreciate it. >>> back to boston now, where a short time ago doctors upgraded the surviving suspect's condition from serious to fair. now, it is not easy for the
accused of sending letters to president obama laced with ricin. the charges are dropped. what he is saying now and what law enforcement is saying now coming up. have hail damage to both their cars. ted ted is trying to get a hold of his insurance agent. maxwell is not. he's on geico.com setting up an appointment with an adjuster. ted is now on hold with his insurance company. maxwell is not and just confirmed a 5:30 time for tuesday. ted, is still waiting. yes! maxwell is out and about... with ted's now ex-girlfriend. wheeeee! whoo! later ted! online claims appointments. just a click away on geico.com. >>> well, welcome back. we've obviously been focusing a lot on boston, but our thoughts are also with the people of west, texas, where i was last week. last week an explosion at a fertilizer plant killed nine people. you're looking at exclusive new pictures for the area where firefighters were killed. you can see the area has been absolutely devastated. the explosion left a crater measuring 93 feet and 10 feet deep. 93 feet wide and 10 feet deep. between the boston bombings and explosion in
for the victims of the bombing. president obama will also observe a moment of silence. and bells will ring to mark the moment when the bombs first went off. the surviving suspect lying in the hospital dead right now handcuffed under 24 hour guard. even though he is still in serious condition as we said investigators are questioning him every few hours with the doctors in the room with them. we are getting new information about this suspect and how the investigation is done. deborah feyerick joining us in new york. don lemon is outside beth israel hospital in boston. deb, start with you, what are you learning? >> well, anderson, we can tell you that investigators and doctors are staying close by the alleged suspect. he is on a ventilator, he is heavily sedated and also restrained. one of the reasons is because they don't want him when he does wake up, when he is sort of -- when he does wake up, they don't want him to rip the ventilator out of his mouth. they're really trying to keep him as calm and as stable as they possibly can. they don't want any additional stress to the body. what we are being
this morning. president obama, we learned, will travel to boston tomorrow. he will attend an interfaith service for the victims of the bombings and their families. for more on the president's plans and his visit to massachusetts, let's go to white house and our white house correspondent brianna keilar. good morning. >> reporter: president obama, we learned yesterday, will travel to boston tomorrow for this interfaith memorial service dedicated to those who were injured or killed in the boston bombings. this will be at the cathedral of the holy cross in boston. president obama, no doubt, preparing for what will be an emotional event. he will be striking a tone as consoler and chief, something we have seen at the white house. we heard him yesterday talking about the people who ran the marathon in boston, after the bombings still went to hospitals to give blood. he will talk about this tragedy and also talk about how this sort of has brought out the best of some of the folks in boston. he is also the commander in chief, that means the investigation of the boston bombings stops with him. he address
pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here in boston. he says this is a major development to him and it is going to be used in the investigation. >> what we know -- a youtube channel which tamerlan tsarnaev put up, had a link to and had a section called terrorists and had had a link to this man. the link was taken down but we have found the video that appeared to link to. he was a militant from azerbaijan. the better known name here is del gato. wha
of the crime. and the man suspected of mailing a ricin laced letter to president obama has been released. his lawyer telling cnn he was set up as another possibly tainted letter arrives at a military base. >>> hello. we're coming to you live from boston where in just the last hour authorities finished reopening the site of the bombings, a six-block stretch of boyleston street, to the people who live and own businesses there. block by block people were allowed back for the first time in more than a week. like there, it's far from normal. people have to show i.d. to get in and out and the general public is not allowed yet. meanwhile, the surviving boston suspect has been upgraded to fair condition. we've been told he's been communicating with investigators. more on that in a moment. our thoughts remain with the victims of the terrorist attack. four people dead and more people hurt than anyone first understood. the revised injury total is now 264 up from 183 because some people did not realize how badly they were hurt according to health officials. this morning 8-year-old martin richard was laid
for wounded souls. president obama honored the victims of the boston bombings with emotional remarks. >> for millions of us, what happened on monday is personal. it's personal. that's what the people of boston are made of. your resolve is the greatest rebuke to whoever committed this heinous act. they sought to intimidate us, to terrorize us, to shake us from those values that make us who we are as americans, well, it should be pretty clear by now that they picked the wrong city to do it. [ applause ] not here in boston. not here in boston. yes, we will find you, and, yes, you will face justice. like bill iffrig, 78 years old. the runner in the orange tank top who we all saw get knocked down by the blast. we may be momentarily knocked off our feet, but we'll pick ourselves up. we'll keep going. we will finish the race. >> the president honored bombing victim krystle campbell, who was killed just weeks before her 30th birthday. he honored lu lingzi, recently moved to boston for graduate school to study math and statistics. she went with two new friends to see the boston marathon and w
between the obama administration and some of the republican -- sorry about this and what that means is the obama administration has said the criminal justice system can make this work, the criminal can handle national security risks like this person, terrorists have been prosecuted, moussaoui. this administration is committed to using the american courts there are some critics, like senator mccain, like senator graham, who say that's too big a risk, that we have too many protection, we have too many abilities on the part of these defendants not to answer questions that put all of us at risk but i don't think there's any chance the obama administration is going to change its mind and use something other than the criminal justice system for this case. >> because a lot of people are raising questions, they had apparently some explosive devices, some weapons, rifles, hand grenades, stuff that's pretty expensive. where did they get this material? where did the money come from that helped them purchase this material? that's why some of these republican senators, lawmakers, are asking for
has only just begun, and the decision by the obama administration, not to designate him as an enemy combatant is upsetting several republicans. >> i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin, joining us from new york. can or should a u.s. citizen be formally given this enemy combatant status? what does the law say? >> every terrorist suspect arrested in the united states, since the first world trade center bombing in 1993 has been treated in the criminal justice system, not as an enemy combatant. standard operating procedure. frankly, the whole status of enemy combatant remains ambiguous in the legal system. the prisoners in guantanamo bay remain in legal limbo. by treating them as criminal suspects, the obama administration is avoiding all kinds of risks and simply acting as the bush administration has in the past and
obama and other u.s. officials has just been released from federal custody. we're standing by for a live news conference of what's been going on. i'm wolf blitzer in boston and this is a special edition of "the situation room." she was a dancer before the blast here in boston and she vows to dance again even though she no longer has her foot. cnn's anderson coop ervice ited the bombing victim in the hospital along with her husband who was also injured and they spoke about her incredibly positive attitude. watch this. >> i hate to ask you to relive what you went through so if you don't want to that's totally fine. >> it's okay. i relive it every day. >> you think about it every day. >> absolutely. >> how close were you to the second explosion? >> i was right in front of it. right in front of the business where it was so i felt the direct impact and it immediately blew off my left foot. >> how far away was the bomb, do you know? >> my guess would have been about five feet. >> five feet. >> yeah. we're lucky to be alive. >> did you lose consciousness? >> i don't think we did. i remember eve
. and they are saying that at least preliminarily a letter that was sent to president obama and received on tuesday at an offsite mail facility has tested positive for ricin. when mail goes to the white house, it doesn't actually go to the white house first. it does go to an offsite facility. this is the same case with capitol hill. keep in mind and i know our joe johns has been reminding us of this, there are people that have to process it. and obviously ricin is a very dangerous substance. so there's certainly concern there about the people who had to process this, but this was intercepted on tuesday. and the big question now is, is there a connection here between this letter, this one letter and the other letter sent to senator wicker and the bombings that happened in boston on monday? it certainly is remarkable timing and really makes you question that. jay carney, the white house press secretary was asked about this during a briefing a short time ago. and he wouldn't rule out that there was a connection. i think the reason a lot of people are asking is the bombings happened about 3:00 p.m. on
wicker, the other to president obama, each containing the same writing, the same cryptic phrase each tainted with ricin. both being tested in the army's bio warfare research lab at ft. diedrich in maryland. joe johns joining us and dana bash joining us, as well. dana, you've been talking to your sources, getting more information on how all this went down. what have you learned? >> i've learned from a law enforcement official here that they have been actually tracking the man who was arrested for some time, because he had been sending letters to senator wicker, this is not the first time. it had been going on for a while. so i'm told they gave the information that they had -- that they collected. they collected a record on this individual to the fbi, and the fbi was able then to go down to tupelo, mississippi to make this arrest of this individual today. and, again, this is -- this man was arrested in the case of sending what they still believe to be at least initial positive tests of ricin, letters to senator roger wicker of mississippi and also we learned today president obama. neit
